Karabakh - horses for sale
Although not well-known beyond its homeland, the swift and enduring Karabakh horse is the pride of Azerbaijan as well as its national animal. This reflects the breed’s contribution to the ancient equestrian culture of this south Caucasian nation. Anyone managing to buy a Karabakh would be in good company as Queen Elizabeth II was given a Karabakh stallion called Zaman in the 1950s. Historically, they were bred by rulers of the Karabakh region as fine riding horses. Despite its historic importance, the breed is under threat of extinction. It is a rare event for anyone to sell a Karabakh, and they are currently only available within Azerbaijan, as there is a ban on export.

Use and characteristics of the Karabakh
Several breeds and types of horse have gone into the creation of the Karabakh. The outcome is a horse that combines power with grace, and endurance with speed. Riders who are fortunate enough to have ridden, or been able to buy, a Karabakh remark that they are extremely agile and sure-footed, a legacy of their origin in a testing mountain environment. Most Karabakhs stand between 14.1 hands (57 inches/145 cm) and 15.2 hands (62 inches/157 cm) high. They have noticeably long legs. Coat colours include bay, grey and chestnut; like the breeds of surrounding nations, the coat sometimes has a remarkable golden lustre. This is one of the features that had great status on the rare occasions when a ruler decided to sell a Karabakh in the past.
